Asthma is life-threatening when students do not have the tools to manage symptoms effectively. The stock albuterol inhaler program provides an albuterol inhaler to be kept in the school health office (e.g., stock albuterol) in the event that a student is experiencing respiratory distress and does not have access to their own rescue inhaler. This e-learning course provides mandatory training for school personnel designated to administer the stock albuterol inhaler.

Never has the time been so critical to focus more on how to turn research into public health promotion and practice. It is time to clarify what the research data is telling us and how does that translate into what we need to do in public health. Recently at CDC’s Division of HIV AIDS Prevention, CDC required that presentations had to highlight how research informed or impacted public health practice. To solve our nation’s and world’s problems, we need research to be well linked and translated into practice.
